Plot synopsis
In a certain kingdom, in a certain country there lived Vasilisa, the Tsar's daughter. Vasilisa was good all around: she was both beautiful and clever, yet she did not want to get married, but wanted to study. Vasilisa dreamed not of grooms, but... about a third higher education. The Tsar suffered prolonged anxiety before taking the decision to give Vasilisa in marriage to the next best man. And the first man to come along was no chance encounter, but Ivan from the neighbouring kingdom. A fairy tale is quickly told, but events don't happen that fast: it turned out not so simple to marry the Tsar's daughter, and the Tsar punished Ivan. Ivan had to pass some incredible tests: with the help ofthe Grey Wolfhe travelled to the thrice-ninth kingdom...
